    Vintage Tabu packs a punch. In modern ones, I'd single out Ormonde Jayne Tolu, warm animalic vanillic oriental.

    And many others... Too many to mention. My collection is extremely imbalanced, and consists of mostly orientals, so I'm slightly biased.

    Among my favorites are Genghis Khan ( thanks to Yuyu15) and Ungaro II. The reason I mention them not because they are my top choices but because they share a somewhat similar vibe ( top and middle notes) at least to my untrained nose. I wonder whether because of the bergamot and ginger components or maybe something else? However the drydown is quite different as Genghis Khan's is much warmer and spicier than Ungaro 2's and probably due to the fact that Ungaro 2 does not last long on my skin at all.
